Adam Eaton begins rehab assignment Saturday
by Marty Gitlin |

White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton is set to start a rehab stint Saturday night with Triple-A Charlotte. He could be back in the lineup on the team's homestand next week.

Eaton has been sidelined with a right oblique injury sustained when he crashed into the fence trying in vain to catch a ball on Aug. 8.

He is eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday, but will spent more time with Charlotte to prepare for his return.

by Marty Gitlin |

Yankees consider six-man rotation when Masahiro Tanaka returns
by Marty Gitlin |

The Yankees could utilize a six-man rotation upon the return of right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, per ESPN. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild indicated that arrangement could continue through 2015 as the team looks to protect Tanaka and his ailing elbow.

"We are going to look at every avenue possible," Rothschild said. "It doesn't mean we are going to do it."

Rothschild added that the Yankees could use a six-man rotation not just to protect Tanaka, but his other starters in the wake of the epidemic of arm problems in the major leagues.

Odrisamer Despaigne: Hitters have adjusted against me
by Marty Gitlin |

Padres rookie starter Odrisamer Despaigne has admitted that hitters have made an adjustment against him, resulting in some tough outings.

Among them was Friday night, when he surrendered three runs on five hits in five innings in Arizona for his second straight loss. Despaigne has yielded 20 earned runs on 39 hits in his last 31 innings pitched covering six starts to raise his ERA from a sparkling 1.31 to 3.44.

"The first five starts, hitters had no idea about me," Despaigne told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I was the new guy. The last six of them, it's been different. Guys are making more adjustments, seeing me the second time, getting a better idea of how I like to work."

Despaigne found success in his early starts releasing the ball from several different arm angles.
